The Bengals managed to come from behind and defeat the Falcons 37-36 to move to 3-1 on the season.

The first half was one of the best offensive performances we’ve seen in an NFL game this season, as the two sides combined for 52 points while the Bengals held a narrow 28-24 lead.

But the defenses stiffened, and the second half proved to be very challenging for the Bengals to get anything going. The offense had only scored three points in the second half before their game-winning drive that saw Andy Dalton throw a touchdown pass to A.J. Green with only seven second left on the clock.

Here are some reactions to the game:

That last stat is crazy, but then again, they’ve had some good defenses to work with that rarely would give up 30+ points. That’s happened in back to back weeks, but the offense managed to save the day this time around.
